Give a thank you to your local dentist with a small token of appreciation such as a greeting card.

National Pi Day

March 14th of every year is Pi Day. Why? Because 3/14 or 3.14 are the first 3 digits of Pi or Π , the given name to the ratio of circumference of a circle to the diameter. Pi is a constant ratio that never changes no matter the size of the circle. Π is an irrational number meaning that the digits never end or repeat in any known way. The first 100 digits of Pi are 3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971693993751058209749445923078164062862089986280348253421170679

Pi Day is often celebrated by eating a round dessert called pie... pronounced "pi".

Ides of March

"Et tu, Brute?" - Julius Caesar (William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar)

The Ides of March marks the first day of Spring and is the first day of the Roman New Year.

Historically, Julius Caesar was warned by oracles to "Beware of the Ides of March". Indeed, he needed to since on the Ides of March in 44 BC, Julius Caesar was assassinated by Marcus Brutus and 60 conspiring Roman senators.

National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day

National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day is always March 29th. This day is meant to celebrate small business owners and the individuals who spend countless hours growing their small business into a successful enterprise. Small business owners often have to do all the heavy lifting themselves and work overtime without pay. This sometimes comes at the cost of personal and family events. In retail, Mom-and-Pop shops bring different and unique products to the marketplace while providing a personal service that can't be supported by a large national chain. In manufacturing, they create many new concepts and ideas, making them creators and patent holders of new innovative products.

How to celebrate? Shop locally.

And as the month is going out like a lamb, companies can also celebrate Take a Walk in the Park Day on the 30th.
